Hankerson earned draft-day comparisons to Reggie Wayne and he flashed big-time production in Washington before injuries and inconsistent play ran Hankerson out of town. The former Miami Hurricane has the size and route potential to play outside and do functional work for Roddy White or Julio Jones if injuries strike.

Summary

The new coaching staff in Atlanta includes offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, who brought over Leonard Hankerson from Washington with him to Atlanta. We'll see if Roddy White (whose #2 role on the team has led to two straight sub-1,000 yards receiving campaigns) endures a challenge for the #2 wide receiver role during training camp. Hankerson is a big (6'2, 211 pounds) receiver (and at 27 years of age Hankerson is seven years younger than the 34-year old White) who has struggled to stay on the field during his pro career due to knee injuries. Stay tuned to see how his health holds up during training camp/preseason. (May 14)

Falcons | Leonard Hankerson impressing (Mon Aug 3, 05:11 PM) - Atlanta Falcons WR Leonard Hankerson has purportedly been the best wide receiver for the Falcons at training camp so far. Hankerson has shown great hands and made his presence known on the outside and over the middle.

Our View: Roddy White is no longer the player he used to be, and Hankerson could steal targets away as the team's third wide receiver. Hankerson follows OC Kyle Shanahan over from the Washington offense, and he's got a nice size/speed combination. It wouldn't be a shock to see Hankerson catch 30 passes this year--and maybe more.
